Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n), last seen arriving home at three in the morning from Viet Nam, voted in the elections for the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly during the morning [KST] of March 10 (Sunday). Also in attendance were Kim Chang Son (Kim Ch’ang-son), Jo Yong Won (Cho Yo’ng-wo’n).
In contrast to prior SPA elections in which the Suryo’ng voted at the Kim Il Sung University of Politics (affiliated with the KPA General Political Bureau), Jong Un voted at the campus of the Kim Ch’aek University of Science and Technology for the university’s long time president Hong So Hon (Hong So’-hon). He arrived in the late morning to the greetings of the university students and faculty “offering the highest glory and warmest greetings.”
Jong Un acknowledged the greeting and headed off to vote. After casting his ballot, he talked with Hong So Hon saying that the university “plays a very important role in all key sectors of socialist economic construction.” Kim Jong Un asked Hong “to work well so that the university could fulfill its responsibility and obligation as the eldest son most trusted by the Party to make a breakthrough in improving science and education, invigorating the economy and bettering the standard of the people’s living and as a locomotive leading science, education and economic construction of the country.”
Kim Jong Un emphasized “once again the position and importance of the university in building a powerful socialist country” and indicated “the direction and ways for it to allow and conferred a benefit for the education of the university and modernization of its scientific equipment and IT.”View Original Article
